He is the architect of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) at the University of Victoria (UVic) in Canada, where he is Distinguished Professor in the Faculty of Humanities. Trained as an Early Modern English scholar, he has a cross appointment in Computer Science, and he held a Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing (2004-15). In 2017-18, Siemens was Visiting Professor at Western Sydney University. He has previously held visiting positions at New York U (2013), at the Institute of English Studies in London (2005, 2008), in Japan (Ritsumeikan U Kyoto: 2010; U Tokyo: 2014) and in Germany (U Passau: 2014).

Monday 28th October 2019 How can Qualitative Spatial Representation (QSR) be used in digital humanities? How can qualitative spatial relationships (e.g. next to, alongside, overlapping, inside, etc) in text be processed as data? How can documents where layout in space contributes meaning (e.g. poetry, multimodal documents) be processed to make use of the spatial aspect? This workshop is based around interaction among participants with interest in these topics. It continues discussions initiated by the AHRC-funded research network: Space and Narrative in the Digital Humanities. The event is open to all, but the number of places is limited. For more details, and to participate, please see: https://www.turing.ac.uk/events/spatial-relationships-text-data Organisers: John Stell, School of Computing, University of Leeds, UK Ian Gregory, Department of History, Lancaster University, UK Tony Cohn, School of Computing, University of Leeds, UK The workshop is supported by funding from: AHRC through the Research Network: Space and Narrative in the Digital Humanities.
